If I retire before my State Pension Age, will my LGPS pension be reduced?

There will be a reduction to your pension from the LGPS 2015 if you retire before your Normal Pension Age which is linked to your State Pension Age.  Pensions from the LGPS 2015 that are earned before 1 April 2020 will not be reduced if you have rule of 85 protection.  Providing you are at least 65 there will not be a reduction to your pension built up before April 2015.

You can read more in the section 'What is my Normal Pension Age'.
